PencilCat’s 30 Days of Art Improvement Challenge - Day 11
Draw a BG with 2pt Perspective
So I discovered Manga Studio’s perspective rulers and played with them for a while before realizing that I had made three 1pt perspective rooms and no 2pt perspective ones. So the logical next step was to draw an ice cream truck, obviously. I drew the 2pt room earlier when I went to post something for day 11 and realized that I hadn’t actually carried out the prompt.

PencilCat’s 30 Days of Art Improvement Challenge - Day 10Draw a BG with 1pt Perspective. Negative points if it’s a railroad or an empty street.

This is a super fast/lazy sketch based on a room that The Secret Door took me to in 札幌市厚別区, 北海道.I have no idea where that is, but my best guess is somewhere in China?)

PencilCat’s 30 Days of Art Improvement Challenge - Day 9

Draw a landscape of a place you’ve never been or drawn.

This is based on a photo of tower karst—the Five Fingers Peak of Huangshizhai—in Wulingyuan, China. I think the piece would have been stronger if I pushed the values so there was more contrast, but I like the painterly, impressionistic effect I achieved. 

PencilCat’s 30 Days of Art Improvement Challenge - Day 8

Find 2-3 objects, make a scene with them. Draw it. Bonus points for creativity. Double points for dramatic lighting.

I didn’t post this last night because I finished it after I set Leechblock to block tumblr to encourage me to go to bed. While doing this I discovered that I am super rusty on horse proportions (despite the fact that what I was drawing was right in front of me!). I’m very thankful that Manga Studio has free transform tools—I would have had to redraw this a lot if it didn’t.

PencilCat’s 30 Days of Art Improvement Challenge - Day 7

Pick the weirdest object in your house/room. Draw it. Shadows and Highlights.

I did this when I was really tired and couldn’t decide what the weirdest object in the house was (and spent entirely too much time thinking about it!) so I gave up and painted the necklace I was wearing. It’s two clear anodized aluminum scales held together with a jump ring. When worn, it makes a nice jingly sound. =)

PencilCat’s 30 Days of Art Improvement Challenge - Day 6Let’s have some fun. Design a character from this character generator. (created by PreservedCucumbers)
I got this prompt:
Body Type: Short, MediumClothing: FormalHead Type: Cat-likeWeapon/Accessory: Crown
After looking at different cat breeds I decided to base the design on the Korat; because the breed originated in Thailand, I researched the formal version of their national costume and decided to have my character wear the Chut Thai Boromphiman. I didn’t work the crown into her design because I was tired and didn’t want to spend much time on this because I also had to do the prompt for day 7 because I skipped a day.

zombie apocalypse roll call

Sam, a sword and lucky charms

still sam, a knife, and steak.
im p good

Mini, a sword annnd a lifesupply of chocolate mint cookies ….B )

Swag, a cybertronian gun, and chicken soup. I think we’ll be fine swag.

neil, death’s scythe and marshmallows

Laura, Artemis (gun) and potatoes with schnitzel. I think we’re good.

Ellie, crowbar, and a delicious sandwich on an onion roll. Sounds good!

@Shazzbaa, a bastard sword, and STEAK. I dunno, man, I think I’m doing pretty good here! Bring on them zombies!

I survive with Rae, have a team of Pokemon, and an unlimited supply of fiber cereal????? I think this might actually be an improvement.

Fi3rfox, portal gun (if that counts as a weapon? If not, the sword from Prince of Persia), chicken/tofu stir fry with miso soup and Genmai Cha. 
I think we’ll be okay! We don’t have direct offensive capabilities but we could cause a lot of havoc with the portal gun, especially if we get creative. =D

PencilCat’s 30 Days of Art Improvement Challenge - Day 4
Draw a part of the human anatomy you have trouble with. x20, with at least 5 being skeletal/musculature studies.
I’m starting this again! Hopefully I can be more consistent this time around. Day 4 totally demonstrated to me that I am secretly two or three when it comes to drawing the same thing over and over, especially if it’s somewhat tricky for me—I get a bad case of the “I don’t wanna”s and then put in the minimal effort to produce something, get unhappy with what I’ve produced, and temporarily give up.
The first 11 were done at the end of June in Photoshop, and the last 10 were done in September 1-4 in Manga Studio 5 (with considerably more patience).

Traditional Irish Song - Here’s a Health to the Company

Did this to test out some new Manga Studio brushes I made based on this tutorial by Foervraengd, and as a quick warm up. I hadn’t drawn in a little over a week because I was resting my wrist.
